Hey, man, you know Madrid projects status better than millions of citizens of the capital

Windsor tower is just finishing demolition. All big cranes are out because demolition has reached the fourth level (tremendous, fast and fantastic work of demolition) and the City Council, who has been the authority on charge of the demolition, gives the "key" to the owners of the tower. We expect than the owners would say in a few weeks what they want to do, obviously there will be another tower, but we don't know if they will construct fast a "simply" tower with their own architects team or maybe will look for a well-known architect like Foster, Calatrava, Pelli or any other.

Chamartin Operation is also "stand-by" because of problems between administrations (city council and spanish goverment) Both of them have ground property and there is still no agreement. So, the latest news is that City Council is thinking to make another "Chamartin Operation II" in his own ground, with big skyscrapers too. But it's just a possibility nowadays.

Vallecas tower is almost dead. No one word of it in the last two years...

That's all by now. Be patient

Just behind the towers, the City Council is the owner of the place, and they have said that there will be a new Congress Hall for the city, but there is still no architect designed for it. Anyway, they want a "singular building", so they will look for a great architect to build it, I hope.

No, sorry It would be a "singular" but also "horizontal" building. No more skyscrapers in this place.

Next skyscrapers in Madrid now will be developed in an area called Operación Chamartín not so far this place, to the north-east, but as I said in a post before, this new operation is in "stand-by" without progress. We expect some future tower in this new place with about 300 meters tall, and a new skyline for the city with more towers, but no decission by now about it...

The designs are great but what I like even more and its just soo cool for Europe, that those 4 big ass towers are under construction at the same time. This is for now the most insane construction site of Europe IMHO!!
